church in pennsylvania accepts its responsibility for the survivors of clergy sex abuse. it's committed to helping them heal for however long that takes. but house bill 1948 and bills like it are not an answer. this kind of legislation is unjust and deeply misleading and it ends up punishing catholic parishes and families who are innocent of any wrongdoing, end quote. the house passed the bill. the senate will consider it next. on saturday, pope francis approved new legal procedures to get rid of bishops who mishandle child sex abuse cases. under the new guidelines, the pope says bishops found to have betrayed their mission of protecting children will be removed from office. pope francis proclaimed two new saints during a canonization mass in saint peter's square. franciscan cannon iced the

harris. >> the phillies not only get the win to salvage a series split 8-1 but also the offense showed up in a big way. a seven run deficit for brewers. what did you see from this offense that you liked that maybe you hadn't seen in a long time for these phillies? >> i tell you what, seeing the stuff that they had today. you heard me question while we were watching, how is this -- he has good stuff. we took advantage of balls up in the zone that when he did make a mistake, we hammered it. that's what happened. we had quality at-bats from a number of different guys, especially in the middle of the lineup that come up huge. they made him pay with the long ball. >> phillies tieing a season high with 13 hits. mccannon seemed very excited. do you feel like he has found a middle of the lineup that hes like and that work going
forward? >> i think he has. by judging what he said, he's not specifically saying that's what he is going to do is mark these guys down. you still have ryan howard over there. that was my feeling. these guys keep going, this is like in his mind i think one game where they show this. now let's see what -- how it goes here for the next few and we'll see how it goes. >> it's interesting you say let's see what goes. it's the most daunting of tasks. three games at home with the cubs who have the best record in baseball. mainly because they have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball. how hard will it be to -- how much of a test will it be facing chicago? >> it will be a great test because you want to play against pitchers like that, consistent and stuff. they are human. they can lose and they can give up runs as stuff just like anybody. you can't -- as a hitter you
can't give the pitcher too much credit. that's when you start getting yourself in trouble. over thinking things. do what you do. go see ball, hit ball, throw ball. keep the ball down in the zone as a pitcher. >> it took them 56 games but they finally score more than three in an inning. they got five. they are looking for more of that against the cubs. >> thank you. last week philadelphia hosted the ncaa lacrosse championship. this week it's the rugby seven. kutztown trying to return to the final for a third consecutive year facing ucla. under two minutes to play. here is sharp knifing his way, coming up short. berry will finish the job. the bruins go up for good. they move on to the finals on the strength of a 14-12 win over kutztown. it was ucla against cal in the title game. it was all golden bears. up 14, berry shrugs off a
defender. cal wins its fourth consecutive rugby championship over ucla, 31-7. history made earlier today at the french open seen right here on nbc. the men's final, djokovic trying to knock off andy murray. how about sending one on the court? match point in the fourth after a long rally. murray puts his return into the net and the joker celebrates as he completes the the career grand slam. the eighth man ever to accomplish that feat. we have ourselves a series in the stanley cup final. the 24-year-old giving the sharks their first win. the penguins lead two games to one. game four tomorrow right here on nbc 10. the pick wiuck will drop shortlr 8:00. we'll be right back. okay, ready?
